Bicycle Master Plan

Project Summary

A key component of creating a more sustainable campus is encouraging cycling on campus as an alternative to commuting to campus and circulating around campus via a personal automobile. Bicycle commuting and circulation are important contributors to reducing the negative impacts from automobile trips and parking, including impervious surfaces, emissions, and the heat island effect. The Ball State Bicycle Master Plan looks to do this by identifying existing routes, proposed or preferred routes, and infrastructure improvements for bicycling. The result of this study will be a campus-wide plan and implementation strategy for a system of bicycle routes, both on-street and off-street.

Community and Campus Bike Plan Presentation

You are invited to attend a meeting that will highlight the preliminary recommendations for the Ball State Bike Master Plan! The plan will include recommendations for on-street bicycle facilities and off-street bicycle facilities. Photos, plans, and sections will help explain how bike paths can be accommodated throughout campus. Potential bike-sharing systems and potential station locations will also be shared.
